Looking at Things from the Left

British Labour Party attacks the rights of the Scottish Parliament – and betrays the cause of transgender rights

with one comment

Correspondent Roland Rance brings us more negative news about Sir Keir Starmer’s British Labour Party “Shameful betrayal by the Labour Party of any commitment to trans rights, and an attack on the right of the Scottish Parliament to legislate for the benefit of the people of Scotland.”.

Most Labour Party members of the Scottish Parliament voted for the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill.

LGBT+ Socialists Report :

This evening the UK Labour Party abstained and allowed the government to enact section 35 of the Scotland Act 1998 to prevent the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill from proceeding to Royal Assent.

The result was: 318 Aye, 71 No

Only 11 Labour MPs took a stand for trans rights and voted NO to this afront to democracy, they are:

Olivia Blake, Sheffield, Hallam
